And the Middle Class: Obama to Pivot to the Economy, Again

President Hollywood.

He loves sequels, he loves formulas, and he loves reboots. And he puts out a crap product that bombs with the public.

The White House is signaling it wants to shift back to the economy after two weeks in which the Syrian crisis has dominated President Obama’s schedule and workload.

Obama will be “focusing” on issues related to the economy in the coming weeks, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday at his daily briefing.

He said the president wants to push forward with economic policies that the White House believes will grow...

Any guesses?

...the middle class.

...

“I know Americans want all of us in Washington — especially me — to concentrate on the task of building our nation here at home: putting people back to work, educating our kids, growing our..."

Any guesses?

"....middle class,” Obama said.

Biden will be doing his part, too.

...

Vice President Biden pressed the administration’s economic message with a Monday trip to Baltimore that highlighted a new $10 million federal grant to widen the city’s port and better connect the shipping center to...

Any guesses?

... nearby rail lines.

You should have gotten that one. That was a charity question. I threw that in there in case you overthought the second Middle Class one and thought "It must be something different, I won't say Middle Class again."

Like I said, the public has seen these movies before, and they're tired of them.

The conventional wisdom is that when you poll "all adults" as opposed to a tighter screening for "registered voters," Democrats generally do better. If that is the case, the latest poll from The Economist/YouGov is the worse news yet for a president obviously in over his head with the Russians and Syria. Obama currently sits at 38% approve/56% disapprove with all adults.

...

With registered voters, Obama is doing a little better with 43% approving, 55% disapproving.

Below, the theme to the Lone Ranger, as reinterpreted by Hans Zimmer for Hollywood's latest greatest disaster film. (Though, I have to say, I really want to see this movie... alas, I was one of the few. And also, I didn't want to see it that much, or I would have seen it when it was in theaters for three weeks.)
